With Markforged’s Metal X 3D Printer, you can take your additive manufacturing to a new level.
Mechanical properties equivilent to cast metal means you can say goodbye to expensive and long lead time tooling
for low volume metal parts.
Markforged metal filaments combine the simplicity and safety of FFF printing with the superior properties of advanced metals, bringing metal 3D printing to your benchtop.
17-4 PH Stainless Steel
17-4 PH stainless steel is a high-strength, high-hardness metal with excellent corrosion resistance. This versatile steel is widely used in the manufacturing, aerospace, petroleum, and medical industries. If heat treated, it has an ultimate tensile strength of 1250 MPa and a Rockwell Hardness of 36 HRC.
**NEW** H13 Tool Steel
H13 tool steel, a material optimised for high temperature and wear applications is used for moulds and die casts, wear inserts and tooling, and forming punches and dies. When heat treated, it can reach a Rockwell hardness of 46-50 and an ultimate tensile strength of 1500 MPa.
With Markforged’s range of composite 3D Printers, you can print high strengthend-use parts and functional prototypes.
Composites are parts made up of more than one material that, when combined,
have synergistic properties different from the original materials.
There are two maincomponents of composite parts: a matrix and a reinforcement.
Onyx is 40% stiffer than ABS and provides the foundation for Markforged’s 3D printed composites. It can be printed on its own or reinforced with any of thier four continuous fibers: Carbon Fibre, Fibreglass, HSHT Fibreglass an Kevlar.
Carbon Fibre is Markforged’s strongest and stiffest fiber with the highest strength-to-weight ratio and great for applications such as: Robotic arms, forming tools, inspection fixtures and end use parts.
Fibreglass is the perfect entry-level fiber as it is inexpensive and 11 times stiffer than ABS. Applications that are a great use of fibreglass include: functional prototypes, jigs, fixtures and end use parts.
Markforged’s HSHT Fibreglass delivers the highest impact resistance and heat deflection temperature of our continuous fibers. It is ideal for applications that need high impact, high elasticity or high heat resistence, such as: Welding fixtures, thermoforms, thermoset moulds or mould inserts.
Kevlar is tough, lightweight and can bend further than any other fibre making it an excellent choice for applications such as: End effectors, cradles, soft jaws, end-use parts.
